LA Lakers vs. Phoenix Suns Preview

LA Lakers

With LeBron in his usual mode and Anthony Davis at a high level of play, the Lakers are a serious threat to any of the rivals in the West. Just to mention that Davis’ form is on the rise, with the Eyebrow winning the latest Player of the Week honors, averaging 38.7 points with 65.2% Fg and 11.7 boards.

LeBron is back on the court, which are sure 25 to 30 points per game, and what is more important, King James is fresh due to his previous absence. He might have to deal with an injury, but on the other side, the veteran regenerated.

During James’ rehabilitation, Austin Reaves stepped up, showing that he has the quality to become a reliable option in the attack. In the last ten games, the 24-year-old averages 19 points per game with 6.2 assists.

Phoenix Suns

KD is back, and the Suns should be much better now. Yes, there is not enough chemistry on the floor because KD didn’t participate in too many games with his new teammates, but still, the expectations are high. For some, that is good; for others, a pressure that might break the team from Phoenix. 

The Suns had a five-game winning streak in the last days of March and the start of April, beating teams like the 76ers or the Nuggets, which is a big thing for Monty Williams’ unit. Durant scored 16 against Minnesota and successfully returned to action.

Chris Paul is increasing his form, which might be the key to future success. He and Durant need to create a bond pretty quickly, because these two guys are the most important pieces of the puzzle, with all due respect for Devin Booker.
